Festivals for Our Time: Cultivating Depth, Diversity and Wholeness
There is a ‘living stream’ of wisdom gleaned from celebrating festivals in the cycle of the year together. This stream emerges from the earth itself and from the natural world, and from the body and soul experiences we share in common as human beings living in a particular place through the seasons. If we want our festivals to be alive and relevant to the times we live in, then we must learn to listen and connect once again to each other and to nature, and to the deeper archetypal patterns that inform all spiritual traditions and live in the hearts of everyone, of every race and culture. Learning to embrace diversity and wholeness, and create meaningful inclusive festivals from such understanding is not an easy task. This workshop will explore ways we can begin that inquiry together.
